Leftover Halloween cupcake liners, anyone? Me too. I can’t bear to let them sit around til next year, so I decided to turn mine into turkey cupcake toppers. As usual, this is a quick, easy and cheap project — and one you can do with your kids.
- Cupcake liners in two colors
- Lollipop sticks
- Candy corn
- Hot glue gun
1 – Place one color cupcake liner inside another.
2 – Use your scissors to poke a small hole in the center of the liners.
3 – Fold the liners in half.
4 – Cut slits into the liners to create feathers. (Also slit the fold on either side.)
5 – Put a line of hot glue in the center of the inside liner on either side of the hole. Insert your lollipop stick from the outside.
6 – Fold the cupcake liners over the lollipop stick and press to seal.
7 – Add hot glue to the back of a large button to create the body of your turkey. Add this to the base of the cupcake liner fold. Repeat with a smaller button to create the head of your turkey.
8 – Add hot blue to the base of a candy corn to create the turkey’s beak. Place this in between the large and small buttons. (Please excuse my ratty Halloween manicure!)
And here’s the finished product!
